November 3 Waterfront Community Day CANCELLED
Due to the devastating impact of Hurricane Sandy, Waterfront Community Day on Saturday, November 3 will be cancelled.
LMCC's friends at the Hester Street Collaborative are coordinating with community partners and Neighbors for Allied Growth to provide basic necessities to those who need them most and they need your help.
Many low-income residents of the Lower East Side and Chinatown, particularly seniors and those who are disabled, are running out of resources. With elevators, EBT cards and ATM machines still out of commission, these men and women are stuck in their homes with little to no access to food and water. HSC will be collecting food (nonperishable preferred), bottled water, batteries, flashlights, blankets, and generators in North Brooklyn on Friday, November 2 and distributing items to some of our community partners on the Lower East Side.
If you would like to donate and are not able to deliver yourself please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will arrange a drop off in Brooklyn or arrange pick up. We are planning to accept drop offs at 1PM & 5PM at the Neighbors for Allied Growth Office, 110 Kent Avenue at N 8th St, but please email to confirm.
If you are able to transport items directly to the Lower East Side, donations can be made at:
CAAAV: Organizing Asian Communities
46 Hester Street, 10AM - 5PM
Two Bridges Neighborhood Council
80 + 82 Rutgers Slip, 10AM - 5PM
GOLES: Good Old Lower East Side
169 Avenue B, 12PM - 6PM
